J. Lee Abandonment – Animals Left Behind During Disasters Sadly many people leave their animals behind. When a disaster occurs many pet owners probably have no idea how bad a flood, natural disaster or wildfire could get or how long they will be kept away. Evacuations become frantic. Many compassionate owners leave them behind until a rescue can be safely organized. Some are not allowed to bring them so they do their best to leave them in the safest locations possible until they could be rescued. Some just callously chain…

by Richard Cameron On August 9th, President Trump, during a visit to his Trump National Golf Club at Bedminster, NJ, made the statement that: “North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen… he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before.” Things were quiet for about a week and half, from the…

Changing Lives During Storms: Never Be Complacent

By Janice Barlow It is inevitable that storms and floods will continue to barrage our nation. As I write this, another tropical depression is making its way across the Atlantic in a pattern that is causing discomfort at the Hurricane Center. In spite of all the hype of approaching storms by various media, especially the Weather Channel, now the bedrock of media meteorology, people have become jaded. Folks in potential danger brush off the possibility of being flooded out of their homes, of losing their roofs, their vehicles, their livelihoods…

Where Did Real Men Go? Women; The Blame is Partially Yours

direction signs one point right (strength) the other pointing opposite left (weakness)

 J. Lee Where Did Real Men Go? What happened? I want to stress this story is not an attempt to bash men. In fact, this story also addresses the woman’s movement who is equally responsible. I don’t think men are 100% at fault, because women have done their part in role confusion. Society has hit a crossroad of extreme gender confusion. Some men have lost their masculinity and some women have lost their femininity. Traditional roles have been replaced with uncertainty. We have lost harmony and balance between male and female…

Arpaio speaking to crowd at a Trump campaign rally in Prescott, AZ

by Richard Cameron   Former Sheriff of Maricopa Country Arizona – Joe Arpaio, is – depending upon who you speak to in Arizona, either loved or hated.  He’s seen as either “America’s Toughest Sheriff”, a racist – or a public official who came to believe the office was less about protect and serve than about serving his ego. Then there are those who are of the belief that the Judge’s order that he disregarded and disobeyed, was unreasonable and improper and that Joe was in his rights to decide not…

by Tim Jeffery Conor McGregor vs. Floyd Mayweather After all the braggadocios and smack talk from the two champions, the biggest pay-per view fight in boxing history boiled down to one man simply hitting a wall, leaving him barely able to stand on legs of rubber one minute into round 10 Saturday night at T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip. Just like that Floyd “Money” Mayweather reached 50-0 in his legendary career. Certainly the bigger and stronger looking Conor McGregor was a force for at least three rounds and…

J. Lee Eric Trump was interviewed by Sean Hannity on Tuesday night (June 6, 2017). The interview is comical in many ways except for when Eric said this about those who oppose his father: “I’ve never seen hatred like this. I mean, to me, they’re not even people.” Eric stated that he hasn’t seen hatred like this, however his father is all about hate, as witnessed while campaigning, attacking any opposition then, and now with the media – if it doesn’t laud him, he calls it “fake”. Eric says “morality has flown…

Victor Mlotshwa, victim of attempted murder by two South African farmers, speaks to reporters after the trial

By Dena Leichnitz The South Africa attempted murder, “coffin case”. While America seems to be reeling with its own racial divisions as of late, there seems to be real racial tensions taking place around the world. South Africa  is not unfamiliar with such racial tensions as they dealt with apartheid for many years that resulted in the imprisonment and eventual release of their President, Nelson Mandela. So it should not come as a shock that once again racism has reared its ugly head in South Africa. Willem Oosthuizen  and Theo Martins Jackson, according…

Our Nation’s Foundations – Lesson Four: Individual Liberty

Lady Liberty and U.S. Flag

Individual Liberty Our nation’s Founders and Framers of the Constitution wanted people to make decisions for their own lives. They wanted the most liberty possible while respecting the rights of others. Remember, the pillars we’re erecting atop the Rule of Law should represent eternal principles that will strongly support our system of government. The first pillar of principle was Limited Government.  The next pillar of principle is just as vital for strengthening a Republic designed to protect our liberties. Our next pillar is Individual Liberty. Create another pillar to erect…
